Like any casino game, video poker on Judi Bola Online comes with its fair share of myths and legends. Here we try and help you navigate through the true ones, the untrue one and the totally crazy ones.
Las Vegas, in particular, boasts its fair share of die hard video poker fans. There are real fans of this game thanks to the decent house edge you can get on the game. But serious fans also spread serious myths- so beware, or at least take them with a pinch of salt. Here are some of the best of them:
- Hitting the button harder, will help you land a Royal Flush.
Well, hit the buttons as hard as you like (if you are playing on your pc, remember it is your pc!). But sorry to tell you, that this won´t make one iota of a difference to the outcome which is set by the RNG (random number generator) of the machine. It doesn´t matter if you are playing Jacks or Better, or Aces and Faces, the same is true.
- It´s better to feed the machine with cash rather than play on credit.
Obviously this is only relevant at a land based casino, such as you might find at Las Vegas, as you can´t play with cash online. But either way, it makes no difference whether you feed the machine with notes, coins or with credits
- Larger coin video poker machines are looser and smaller coin machines are tighter.
The odds and house edge are a function of the variant you are playing and the payout table, not the coin size! You will have to bet maximum coins to get the biggest jackpot, however.
- Previous results have an effect on which cards will be drawn next.
Sorry! Video Poker is not black jack. You can´t card count. but the payout is comparable anyway.
- Video poker machines get hotter and hotter over time:
Again, every game of video poker is a mutually exclusive event. Machines don´t get hotter and hotter (there are some progressive video poker games that build up bigger and bigger jackpots, however).
Remember, that the payout on video poker compares favourably with other games, but also bear in mind that alot of the payout comes off the royal flush- which only comes in about once in every 40,000 hands (on average…see below) or so. Be realistic when you play video poker!
- A Royal Flush Hits Every 40,000 Hands or S
This is an AVERAGE number. You might get 3 in a hundred or you might not see one ever! There are other video poker players on the machines.
- 100% Payback Means You Always Wi
Again, this is averaged out over many hands and many players. Whether you come up trumps is down to luck again I am afraid.
- Someone Stole My Royal Flush
If you have just left a machine, and the next guy to play on it lands a royal flush immediately, you are going to feel gutted. But you shouldn´t. Because unless you had hit the button at the exact same microsecond as the new player, you wouldn´t have won it anyway. The winner had just as much chance of winning it on another machine.
- The Hands are Pre-Programmed On Video Poker Machines
No. The hands are generated from a random number generator
- It´s better to play Multi Hand Video Poker (Power Poker) than Single Hand.
The Odds are Better.
This is a fallacy. The odds do not change on Deuces Wild, for example, just because you are playing 100 hands at the same time. Each hand is played from a separate deck of cards, so the same odds apply. You may hit the bigger wins more often, but that´s because you are simply playing more hands 8often at a lower bet level). Check that payout table of the multi hand machines. Sometimes the casinos reduce the payout, which is one to watch out for.
Customary gambling clubs do not give this motivator while the individual is needed to pay stores to play more. Web-based betting offers you rewards, so you can decide to continue or try new games. Web-based betting should be possible from any spot, if you have a web association, in contrast to the conventional club, you should genuinely be available at the gambling club to bet.
